Management and visualization of typed information. The application provides a rich interface to create, edit and view single information units with a type-specific information representation. The local data is browsable through a hierarchical or semantical structure.
Searchability of all data based on different criteria. The application uses Apache's Lucene Technology to create a searchable index of all information units. Thus, the application provides a search view to initiate a search, a view for the search results and an extra information type for saving search queries. Users can save search queries, called 'Favorite Searches', and subsequently use these Favorites to execute regular search requests against a growing and dynamically changing information pool.
Desktop Integration. Remus provides a customizable desktop-panel which enables rapic access to often-used operations without having the entire application on the screen. For a screencast on how to use the panel, see http://www.remus-software.org/user-documentation/7-dektop-integration/14-the-desktop-panel.
Synchronization with external information pools. Today's information management landscape already offers a great number of excellent platforms for handling specific information types. Typical examples of such platforms, especially for user-generated content, are Youtube, Delicious or Flickr. They all share the same goal: providing an application structure for the management of one specific type of information (Youtube -> videos, Flickr -> images, ...). The goal of Remus is not to compete against these applications, but to facilitate and enhance your local information management by providing functionalities to browse through these remote information repositories and to synchronize your data in Remus with the information in other repositories.
